The Secretariat organized a webinar
for the Asia-Pacific region to promote a science-policy dialogue on the detection and identification of living modified organisms (LMOs). The objective of the webinar was to facilitate an exchange of views among policymakers and scientists on how laboratory analyses of LMOs can best respond to specific national regulatory needs in an effective manner.
The webinar was organized in line with requests made during the Asia-Pacific Workshop
on the Detection and Identification of LMOs, which was held in Kuala Lumpur on 20-24 March 2017, for the Secretariat to facilitate the exchange of views among policymakers and scientists to discuss the strengths and limitations of methods for the detection of LMOs in order to inform policymaking and implementation, including those policies that set requirements for identification and quantification of LMOs by the exporters.
